11:00 pm
you, tom, if terry collins was willing to go to familia for five outs after that one out walk to ben zobrist with lorenzo cain walking up, he left familia in the bullpen, another walk from tyler clippard, and not much marginal room for error for familia and we have seen an error, literally from daniel murphy. here comes a 1-0. to salvador perez. with the royals leading. 2-0. >> tom: my point, joe, hard to allow the tying run to score. even get on base in this case, the go ahead run without your best relief pitcher in the game. bullpen by formula yes but it turned on a cold pitcher in the eighth inning, tyler clippard. >> harold: guys, i still come back, murphy makes a routine play. got two outs. got familia with the hitter on
11:01 pm
the right side. gets you out of the inning. >> joe: now familia with two blown saves in the series. this one trickles away and coming down the line was hosmer. he was thinking about continuing to the plate as duda w went aft it. >> harold: playing catch right now. they need to catch a baseball. we watched two pitches to d'arnaud that he didn't handle and then a throw to first duda drops. just ugly baseball for a moment here. >> joe: now 2-0 pitch. from familia. 2-1. >> harold: it goes back to what you said, joe, early. they just make contact. when you put the ball in play you put the pressure on the
11:02 pm
defense. and that's how they are winning ballgames. >> joe: here comes the 2-1 pitch to perez. fouled, 2-2. >> harold: i don't think any staff particularly the mets with all their power and all the strikeouts they racked up including the man on the mound have ever had guys in their whole career put the ball in play as much as this team has done in this series. >> joe: now wade davis is ready for more than an inning here tonight, well rested. here is a 2-2 pitch now to perez. that's into right field. that ball is going to get down. another run scores! that's hosmer going to third is
11:03 pm
moustakas, it's 5-3. and salvador perez has his third hit of the night, his first rbi. >> harold: joe the first to third again. first to third. >> tom: another two strike hit. >> harold: i just hope the baseball world has woke up and realized and watched how the kansas city royals play baseball. they don't live for the homer, if it's there they will take it if not we'll put the ball in play and make you catch the baseball to beat us. >> joe: salvador perez with a big tonight, three out of four. this rbi makes it a two-run game and those who are here
11:04 pm
representing kansas city, whether it's player or fan they are having all the fun down here in the eighth. still only one out. moustakas took that trip on the hit by perez. book is closed on clippard, a third of an inning. two runs, no hits, but two walks. here's gordon. this will be a double play, brilliantly turned to keep a run off the board for kansas city. what a job by murphy who committed that error in the inning. but you had to wait and see and it was murphy to tags perez and out of the glove flips for the double play to keep moustakas
11:05 pm

and lead by two. and now ned yost is going to go to his closer for two full innings here, who is wade davis who has not appeared in game one, in the eighth inning. >> tom: rules of engagement change in october. davis with no save beyond three outs in the regular season did have a six out save in the alds game number four. wasting no time in getting as you said his rested closer into the game. >> joe: man there, jeurys familia, first pitcher with two blown saves in a world series since 2008 when ryan madson of philadelphia was guilty of that and he stands to be the winner tonight. orlando takes over for wright.
11:09 pm
wilmer flores and juan lagares will be the hitters. >> harold: i assume that was a double switch position, the pitcher -- >> tom: familia gets the money when save. cain against clippard. 0-2. cain had clippard 0-2. made him throw six pitches, drew the walk and then the closer comes in the game. >> joe: here's a 1-0. strike one on flores and that catches salvador perez. october filled with that. >> harold: caught him right in the neck? >> joe: he's going to get looked at.

11:11 pm

11:12 pm
the ability to make contact. also up tempo baseball. pitchers work quick. defense covers a lot of ground. we've seen the baserunning, the aggressiveness there. swing the bat early and often. they play the game fast. >> joe: wade davis up by two. not allowed an earned round in his last 14 post-season appearances and he's got one occupant as he strikes out flores to start the eighth. one down and instead of lagares, it will be kelly johnson. so kelly johnson comes off the bench. there is action for the mets out in their bullpen. this is the worst situation fortiery collins, not only is familia unable to maintain the lead the error, a big part of it
11:13 pm
now he doesn't want to with a game tomorrow night spread out familia where he wouldn't be availabl available apparently have to get him out of here. johnson, strike one. >> harold: you're right. that's a great point. you have another game you have to play. you got to continue to manage the series. >> joe: daniel murphy with a big error in the top of the inning. one into right. over to get it is orlando just into the game. two out. and batter will be granderson. >> tom: familia goes back out to the mound and tie the game or lead. can't hatch the closer go out there down two. kansas city closer, i don't know
11:14 pm
how anybody hits the guy. he has three complete wipe out pitches. fastball, the cutter, the curveball. >> joe: only seven pitches thrown for the first two outs. granderson takes ball one. >> harold: the other thing joe, they haven't seen davis since game one. i thought the presfru familia the other day was going to come back and bite him. any time you give hitters a chance to see that closer more than you need to it's an advantage hitter. >> joe: there's a strike. matz was the starter if the bullpen could hang on.
11:15 pm
the bullpen could not. that's a strike on granderson. >> harold: to your point. back-to-back sliders, just devastated, painting on the corners, tough to pick up. >> joe: good swing by granderson. stays 1-2. david wright on deck. big bats will bat for the mets before tend of this one. what is right now a two-run game after a three run top of the eighth. 1-2. to the right side. zobrist makes the play to his

♪ grave yard smash ♪ monster smash snoept catch on in a flash ♪ ♪ then you can do the monster mash ♪ ♪ oooh >> joe: this was a party here into the top of the eighth inning at citifield, the royals took it to them. three runs in the top of the eighth with an error by murphy mixed in. and now robles is in the game with ni uruenhouse.
11:20 pm
first batter is paulo orlando. >> tom: biggest story mets young guns against this keep kansas city lineup. subtext and mets were concerned about this because the royals put the ball in play the interior defense of the mets. not very athletic, not a lot of range. took five outs away from tying this series. for it to show up. >> harold: it was interesting, alex rodriguez and i were discussing this before. think about it. the mets will have anywhere from eight to ten or 12 strikeouts a game. maybe 15 with the bullpen getting hot. so then you got 12 more outs to get but what royals are not going to give you that many strikeouts. >> joe: here's a 2-1. >> harold: that ball will be in play. that's how the defense comes into play.
11:21 pm
who is going to make those extra outs that they would normally get with the pitching. >> joe: murphy with the error in the eighth inning with two-on-one out on a slowly hit ground ball by hosmer. and then the royals went to work. moustakas an rbi hit. salvador perez an rbi hit. gordon bounced into a double play and now a 2-2 pitch to orlando. ball three. >> harold: that just kills you as a defender. last thing -- you're out there saying come on pick me up, please. i know we got the nice double play to end the inning but you want that to happen right away. but it didn't. but once you make that error, nobody feels worse than you on field. >> joe: murphy will bat second in the bottom of this ninth inning.
11:22 pm
innings seven on for kansas city this post-season. hitting .339 and scored 44 runs. that's strike three. the royals have scored more runs from the seventh inning on in the post-season than they have from the first through the sixth. >> harold: that to mesa tribute how they play. they don't ever quit. they keep coming at you and always think they have a shot. >> tom: that's allowing only 11 runs. barely in the batter's box. >> joe: 2 for 8 in his career swinging it. >> harold: he's bean starter in the past. this isn't your traditional bullpen guy that never got the swing. i hear you, tom.
11:23 pm
i don't want to stand there and swing. stand there and back up out of the box so you don't get hit. >> joe: one out, nobody on. strike two. it will be the two, three and four hitters, the first three for the mets in the bottom of this ninth inning, wright, murphy then yoenis cespedes. taken all the way, two out. >> tom: go sit down and relax. >> harold: a lot of people like the dh go see, see. that's why you need a designated hitter. that's what they are echoing right now. >> tom: good eye up there.
11:24 pm
way to follow instructions. >> joe: strike three called and then just good-bye, i'll go do my real job next. so with two out nobody on here's escobar. paul one from robles who is the seventh pitcher of the night for the mets. >> harold: he just looks nasty to face. he looks like he's going to hit somebody every time he delivers the ball. >> tom: the mets finally found a royal who will take strikes after getting to the kansas city closer. >> joe: game is a long way from over. mets, as it stands now will need just one base runner to have a
11:25 pm
chance at the bottom of the inning if robles can keep it a two-run game. >> harold: set up nicely. go wright, murphy, yoenis cespedes u-got the middle in the heart of that order that can do damage. you're set up nice with the hitters you want to come up with a chance to tie this or win it. >> joe: wade davis, knees how to get the last three outs. that's behind the plate for d'arnaud and out of his reach. 2-2. they read my mind in the truck tomorrow night it's edinson volquez back from the dominican republic after losing his father. the day he took the ball in game one. against matt harvey.
11:26 pm
here is a 2-2 pitch. that's into right center. it will hang up and nieuwenhuis just in the game is there. the mets come up as they trail by two. if you're the band europe, you love a final countdown. it's what you do. if you want to save fifteen percent or more on car insurance, you switch to geico. it's what you do. and there's actor jaleel white. and wax museum urkel. it's weird they're hanging out, but dual zone automatic climate control keeps one toasty and the other from melting.
11:27 pm
and the 7 inch touch screen display audio system drowns out that canned laughter. it's weird they'd want dual wishbone rear suspension, but the road to redefining oneself has many twists and turns. did i do... the new scion im. standard features that actually come standard. weird, right?
11:28 pm
>> joe: what's it going to be here in the bottom of the ninth inning game four of the sz. nine times since team came back from a deficit. that was the cardinals game six,
11:29 pm
the last to do it in 2011 against texas. meanwhile, the guy trying to prevent that is wade davis who only one time all year allowed two runs and that was august 13th against the los angeles angels of anaheim and now in the bottom of the ninth inning it's david wright. >> tom: their mission get yoenis cespedes to the plate with a runner on base. one hit, a home run. >> joe: the one through six hitters tonight for the mets have one hit. and that belongs to granderson back in the fifth. murphy 0 for 3.
11:30 pm
2 for 16 in the series. yoenis cespedes 0 for 3. duda 0 for 3. d'arnaud 0 for 3. one ball, one strike. edinson volquez gets the ball tomorrow night if the royals win here tomorrow night it will be on him. still have the first opportunity to clinch the first championship for kansas city in 30 years. 1-1. strike two. >> harold: this is where it gets tough. now get the slider on the outside corner. to fall behind this guy, he's got so many weapons to get two. that's why it's so hard to get to him. >> joe: here comes a 1-2 pitch. too far outside.
11:31 pm
2-2. wright strikes out to start the inning. >> harold: that's the pitch i thought he was going to throw 1-2. kind of wasted a fastball to get it to 2-2. but when you have control you don't worry about it. here it is. it comes right back with it. look at the drop on that. looks like a fastball coming in and then just bottoms out on you. >> tom: because he has three put away pitches it forces you to be aggressive. i know you're trying to get on base, but you can't concede strikes to wade davis. >> joe: here's daniel murphy.
11:32 pm
toast of the town for the mets and in new york through the first two rounds of the playoffs but it's been a different story against kansas city. two out of 16 and a killer error in the top of the eighth. with familia on the mound. here's a 1-0. 2-0. >> harold: what they've done to take away his power, show him the ball inside. first at-bat, a little bit of a mistake, hits a bullet, nice play by the right fielder. other than that it's gone away. you want to hit the ball hard, hit it hard in the opposite direction. >> joe: a 2-0. 2-1. >> harold: nasty little slider outside corner.
11:33 pm
dirty. just filthy to hit. >> tom: like mouse at third base still honoring the bunt here. >> joe: 2-2. >> tom: now he can retreat. >> joe: mets need a base runner to have a chance. wade davis doing his usual work here in the ninth after a perfect eighth. 2-2. hard hit left side and through moustakas. murphy is on with one out in the ninth. we got a glove on it. couldn't make a play. >> harold: i tell you the more i see them move mouse around the infield the more you realize he's a third baseman. >> tom: he's not comfortable in
11:34 pm
the middle. we've seen that repeatedly. now they've done what i think is their mission. get yoenis cespedes to the plate as the tying run. 3 for 7 against wade davis. >> joe: goes down as a base hit for murphy. his third of this world series. and right down here it is, yoenis cespedes 0 for 3. only one rbi in this world series. picked up minutes before the deadline. from the detroit tigers by sandy alderson and when he came to the mets everything changed offensively for new york.
11:35 pm
wild swing, it's been 40 at-bats since the last home run f for yoenis cespedes. last 28 games with nets he hit just .225, two home runs, ten rbis after just going off. 17 home runs over his first 41 games. he's trying to find his stroke again. 1-1. that's inthe right, a base hit. murphy will hold at second, two on, one out. tying runs are on. >> harold: slider got him but the fastball stays on it and drives at any time other way. first time i've seen a ball down for him and he throws his hands.
11:36 pm
>> joe: now it's lucas duda. winning run at the plate. wade davis allowed three home runs during the season. duda hit 27. he has one this post-season. strike one.
11:37 pm
it's duda now with d'arnaud on deck and remember conforto has been taken out of this game. nieuwenhuis would follow d'arnaud. broken bat. that is caught. going off, yoenis cespedes and the game is over! yoenis cespedes just took off and he's doubled off on the soft line drive and now the royals are one win away from a world series championship. final tonight 5-3. in a three hour 29 minute game and the game ends on a base runnering mistake. multiple two mistakes one
11:38 pm
physical, bhinl. murphy ground ball. yoenis cespedes on the ball. you have nowhere to go. it's in front of you. >> tom: trail runner. game turned on a mistake. ended on a mistake. >> joe: it wasn't even close. yoenis cespedes just took off. he's got a guy in front of him. playing in front of him. and he's caught on first base out bay mile. and the kansas city royals get two innings from their closer wade davis and they are one win away. up three games to one. >> harold: every mistake you make they seem to capitalize whether on the offensive side or the defensive side. we're watching a team that
11:39 pm
really puts pressure on you. >> joe: on top of that when you get into a battle of the bullpens, good luck because kansas city brings one guy after the next, it's better than what's on the other side. >> harold: we saw it tonight. >> tom: check mate. >> ken: mike you had an eventful ninth inning. what's going through your mind? >> make a good throw. get over to first base. make good throw. get us out of a little jam he were within. >> that eighth inning rally. classic. at what point during that inning did you sense okay here we go again? >> just started with somebody getting on base and able to like we say keep the line moving. we were able to do a good job of that. we were able to score a couple of runs later on in the game. throw the ball over the wade and let him shut the door.
11:40 pm
>> up guys are one win away. you have been building towards this moment. how excited are you to play tomorrow night behind edinson volquez. >> really excited. we're only one game away from winning the world series but it's a great ball club. we have to go out and do what we do best. play good defense and find a way to win. those guys are going to come to play tomorrow and we got to be able to battle back. >> mike, thank you. >> sal, before wade davis faced duda, what did you say to him? >> we got to do it. he told me what he want to use and you okay and he said come on, sal. i told him after that, i don't like to be in that situation. >> you asked wade davis if he
11:41 pm
was okay. you were okay with the bat. but let me find out how you're feeling physically after you were nailed here in the chest. >> it's sore right now. my left hurts a little bit. we're going to talk to the trainer after. >> final question, tomorrow you have an opportunity to win a world series. edinson volquez is on the mound. obviously an emotional ride for him. so what do you anticipate your conversations will be with him before he takes the mound? >> i talked to him a little bit before the game. he concentrates. >> thanks so much. appreciate it. >> thank you very much. >> all right, joe. >> joe: they are referencing edinson volquez who started game one that day. he lost his father. he went to the dominican republic. he's back. arrived here today. gets the ball tomorrow night and the royals are one win away from their first world championship
11:42 pm
in 30 years. that's it from us in the booth for just a bit but right now out the kevin and the guys in the outfield. take it away. >> joe thanks very much as we transition back to post-game welcome to our post-game show presented by chevrolet. fra frank, kevin. these royals so tough find a way, score three runs in the eighth inning and one win away from a world series now. we'll tell you how they did it, mets fans not so thrilled. couldn't believe it. they let it slip away tonight. didn't go well for them at citifield. for folks in kansas city and power light district they are fired up in kansas city. their royals one win away from a world series championship. we're back.
11:43 pm
11:44 pm
11:45 pm
we're back at citifield, post-game show on fox brought to you by chevrolet and it is a royals come back, the seventh come back in this post-season, second most of all time. they do it again three runs in the eighth inning and beat the mets. one win way from the first title since 1985. you just tuned in, frank thomas, kevin millar, raul ibanes, alex rodriguez. what opened the floodgates. a groundball murphy when familia came in right through telecommunication and boom the rally was in. you're a middle infielder. take me through what's going through your mind. >> with five outs remaining in the game until you win a game, game two of the world series the
11:46 pm
thought process starts as familia starts jog in from the bullpen and you have three priorities and they are very, very specific. number one, kevin is nothing gets by you no matter what happens. you dive for everything. number two, you have to get one out. i don't care if you break down like a little leaguer you have to get one out. third if you think it lottery and the ball is hit hard, you get a double play and now you're three outs from winning game two of the world series. >> that was the biggest part. you saw trekless coming in, charging that ball with people in scoring position, potentially scoring that ball, you come in and bobble it, no runs scored there at that point. it was tough. you feel terrible for daniel murphy. we've all made errors on this stage it hurts. >> you feel terrible for daniel murphy because without him the new york mets wouldn't even be in this situation. with that being said it's a very difficult moment. the game looks like it sped up a
11:47 pm
little bit. you're trying to make a great play. you play conservative. you play to minimize damage. >> tough, tough error. but the infield experience we got to stop that ball and keep it in front. that's just the royals. one little crack and big door opens. they took advantage. we saw them do it all playoffs. this team is destined to win championship. >> one thing for the mets their closer jeurys familia as dominant as anybody. he converted 21 skch saves and did so in dominating fashion until this in game one which was shocking. gordon going deep in the bottom of the center-field which tied the game. the royals eventually won that game in 14 innings. he came in last night familia a blow-out. tonight, opened the floodgates. he didn't do anything to close it either. perez had a huge hit. mouse obviously too. and now all of a sudden, familia, they got to him.
11:48 pm
flat out lights out. he's blown two saves. >> it's rare because his stuff is unbelievable. devastating stuff. 97, 98 mile-per-hour that moves like a split-finger. this royals team will frustrate you. they are one through nine pressure on the defense. stront strikeout. makes you make plays. i don't care if they ground out. feel the ground ball. throw to first base. run the bases well. there's constant eck. they are not afriebd down four, five six. we saw it in houston. we saw it in this series. this team has a ton of heart. >> when you wake up tomorrow morning and read the score box you'll see a blown save by familia but a chopper from hosmer and routine ground ball by moustakas. and it's a different story. very tough play for murphy. you probably can't see from here but when you make that play i told kevin you got a poor read and made it difficult. >> right off the bat it ended up
11:49 pm
being bad. what wasn't bad if you're a kansas city fan these royals, it's the same story, right? in a game that it looked like it was going the mets all the way. here they go again, the door was just opened a little bit and they charged through it. >> they hide in the weed and wait for to you make a mistake feign make a mistake as evidenced in the houston astros game, the toronto blue jays game and now this game, you open a little window they blow a gigantic hole in the game. >> we know how good this royals team is. this is what we talk about all the time called experience. they were here last time on this big stage. back again with a lot more help and ready to win a championship. they look like they are at this ball game. the royals can come back any time. give them one crack they will open the door. >> matt harvey trying to keep them from celebrating on this field.
11:50 pm
one thing important from the pre-game show. kevin millar chair situation was very disturbing. we decided to give the slow mo technology. watch kevin disappear. slow mo. there you go. >> i'm a big fan of ken rosenthal. >> notice i tried to keep it together a little bit. just a little smile. not a laugh. >> if you're the one trying to keep us together we're all in trouble. so that will do it three citifield. royals come back. they are up 3-1. coming up next your late local news. we'll see you tomorrow night.
